TAQUERIA LA UNICA OPENS ON UPPER STATE STREET

Los Agaves Restaurant Group, the popular Santa Barbara-based Mexican restaurant brand, is expanding its collection of restaurants with the opening of Taqueria La Unica. Located at 3771 State Street, the former home of Dunkin’ Donuts, Taco Bell, and Char West, Taqueria La Unica, showcases the art of traditional Mexican street food, including tacos, alongside other popular taqueria mainstays. This marks the eighth restaurant to open in the South Coast region by the restaurant group, family-owned and operated by brothers Carlos and Christian Luna and their families.

“Where our family is from in Jalisco, some of the very best food can be found right on the streets – it’s amazing, there’s nothing else like it!” shared Carlos Luna, owner of Taqueria La Unica. “We wanted to recreate the experience that transports our guests to the streets of Mexico, where the flavors are bold, the spices are fiery, and the tacos are always fresh. Taqueria La Unica is more than just a place to eat, it’s a celebration of the vibrant culture we grew up with and traditions that inspire our authentic Mexican cuisine.”

Taqueria La Unica features an open kitchen where guests can watch the “Taquero” (head taco chef) and the team at work. The menu features traditional street tacos, tortas, volcanes, alambres, and more, all housemade with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. The eatery offers a variety of meats, such as Pastor, Lengua, Cabeza, Cachete, Labio, Suadero, Longaniza, and Tripa, among others, accompanied by homemade salsas. Vegetarian options include mushroom, cauliflower, and bean among others. Guests can also enjoy a range of beer, wine, and housemade horchata to accompany their meals.

Hours are Sunday – Thursday 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., and Friday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. Follow Taqueria La Unica on Instagram @taquerialaunica_sb for updates.
